Last year, at almost exactly this time my hair started to quite literally break. I remember being in Hood River, Oregon and getting out of the river after paddle boarding. It was a super windy day and my hair had gotten pretty tangled. After showering and brushing through it I noticed for the first time ever my hair had started breaking. I thought I took pretty good care of my hair... I didn't really do anything special but, I have never chemically treated my hair and I do my best not to use a lot of heat... although I do use my flat iron almost every day. Everything I've read and every hairstylist I've seen says washing your hair should not be an everyday occurrence. I wash my hair generally 3 times a week in hopes of it improving its health. But... since I have pretty thin hair, it gets oily really fast. I have heavily relied on dry shampoo and texturizing products to keep my hair looking clean and full until I found Pantene's new Charcoal Collection shampoo and conditioner. I've learned that unlike our skin, hair doesn't have a built-in purification system. So that means that those of us going a couple days without washing have our dry shampoos and other products just building up on our hair making it gain unnecessary weight. You guys know I've used Pantene for quite a while but this new Charcoal Collection is a game changer.
Pantene identified this constant build-up in our hair as an issue and developed a shampoo and conditioner containing a Pro-V nutrient blend which improves hair's health from the inside out.. Their new charcoal line addresses this problem head on by using activated charcoal, something you find quite often in health and beauty products. The activated charcoal works to detox your hair by attracting impurities like a magnet and sucking that junk outta there!!! While it does this, it's also releasing antioxidants to help your hair look and feel refreshed and clean with some major body and shine! You know what that means? It means MORE good hair days with less work!
Using this shampoo has helped my hair tremendously. The shampoo is free of silicone, parabens and dyes- aka the nasty stuff. For someone like me who has oily hair... this shampoo helped to reset the balance of my hair leaving it clean and refreshed and able to use dry shampoos much less often. I am finally starting to notice big improvements of the health and body of my hair! You can bet that I'm not going anywhere without this shampoo and conditioner now. Believe it or not, the Pantene Charcoal Collection Conditioner is Pantene's FIRST EVER silicone-free conditioner. HOLLA! It rinses out quickly and isn't too heavy (great for gals like me with super fine hair). Just like the shampoo, the conditioner is free of parabens and dyes and contains pro-vitamin B5, white charcoal and antioxidants, the perfect combo! The new Pantene Charcoal Collection will be available for purchase at Target in mid-July. That’s right around the corner!
Have you guys tried this shampoo and conditioner yet? What other tips and tricks do you have to keep your hair healthy and looking fabulous!?
